A rotten apple.... (Canon S50)
Hello all!

Well, after much indecision, I finally went for the S50. And what do I think? I love it! It is the most amazing camera. I'm starting to learn the manual controls, and I wonder how I ever did without them.

I've been taking practise shots this morning, and I have one I'd like to show. The apple and the flower are untouched (except for a little sharpening) - the background has been desaturated nearly completely, a slight red tint run through it, and then a Paint Daub filter. I will include a small resize of it here, but I'll also link to the full one - I just want you to see the detail on the apple. The S50 is some camera!

Here is a link to a medium size version:

I would really appreciate any constructive criticism, as I consider myself a beginner.

Thanks everyone.

I like it... Very nice contrast! The DOF of the background 'fading' out is also very cool! :D
